Braunwald funicular

Steep ascent to the sun terrace...

Linthal (654 m above sea level) ⇒ Braunwald (1,256 above sea level)
Ride time 7 minutes

The journey from Linthal to Braunwald is a unique experience in itself. While in 1907 the wooden carriage took a further 20 minutes to drive to Braunwald, today's Braunwaldbahn, conquering a 64% gradient, travels from Linthal to the sun terrace with its amazing views in just 7 minutes. In celebration of the 100th anniversary in 2007, new colours now distinguish the funicular.
